We are very sorry to write that OSA Past President Tony Vander Voet died on the evening of Sunday April 22 after a battle with cancer, with his family by his side.
We send our sincere condolences to his wife Susan McCrae and his family. Both Tony and Susan have been dedicated and active OSA members, supporting the work of the organization and artists everywhere. Together they chaired exhibitions, as recently as the 2017 Members Exhibition at the Carrier Gallery, wrote the members’ newsletter, generously mentored the Council, and of course Tony previously led council as President from 2013-2015. They often joined the OSA trips to Killarney in Georgian Bay and twice went to Dingle, Ireland, touring, painting and drawing. Tony always brought his genuine love of art and his appreciation for the different talents and skills of everyone. He always had an encouraging word and an insightful view of any situation. There is no question, he was loved and appreciated by all of us and we will miss him dearly for a very long time.
There will be no funeral according to Tony’s wish. A Celebration of his Life will be held in June.
